The Movie Of May

The sky is so very blue
Leaves on the trees are so very green
Then the sun comes shinning through
And a day in May unfolds this scene

I like to watch the movie of May
It wasn't made in Hollywood
But still amazes me
For it's so good so very good

The birds fly as though it's the first time they have ever flown
There's a peaceful feeling as you walk along
On the porch I enjoy the mild mannered breeze
Month of may stay forever if you please

There's a stream that sparkles like gold in the sun
And now is the time to have some fun
And there's so much more I could say
About the movie of May

Flat Tired Flat Broke

Flat tired flat broke
A cowboy without a saddle
And I'm out of rope

No matter where I travel
Land or sea her memory
Always stays afloat

Every night I sleep beneath a thousand mile sky
With all those stars shinning down
But sleep don't come till early dawn I yawn
Drinking flat coffee as I drive to town

Flat tire no spare
I think I've been there before
Flat tired flat broke I can't take anymore

A Letter Today

She might find a letter today
She's expecting a letter today
Standing at the mailbox
She fumbles through the mail looking for a special letter

She opens up the envelope
Unfolds the paper puts on her glasses
And begins to read
Hope she finds everything she needs

She might find a letter today
Maybe I have spoiled her that way
If she didn't think it was love
By now she must surely believe

She might find a letter today
And if she connects the letters between the lines
She might find
A letter today

No Man Is An Island

No man is an island
That's what they say
Seems I've been stranded here forever and a day

A place where friday never came
And no story can be written
About a man with no name

The sunset looks like an echo upon the waves
No one can hear me all my dreams are adrift forever gone

Too Blue To Cry

I'm too sad to sing but not too sad to write
I'm too tired to dream
But I'll dream tonight

I'm too blue to cry
But not too blue to say what makes me blue
I guess I'm just missing you

Winter lingers on the sky is gray again
There's a red bird resting on a limb
Wish that little red bird would sing a hymn

Cause I'm too blue to cry
But not too blue to say what makes me blue
I guess I'm just missing you

Lonely Always Gets Left There

Lord I don't have talent and I don't have money
I don't have connections to get me somewhere
I don't have a girl to call me honey

I don't have a wife to come home to
The songs I write are all just lonely
And lonely always gets left there

I look tall in the moon light but some things are hard to bear
When there's a silent shadow on the wall
Lonely always gets left there

And what's in the morning but another day
I'll be thankful if there's sun light to be my company
The only one who cares

And come the evening I'll start believing
Cause it's happened before never a knock on the door
And lonely always gets left there

Trumpet In The Sky

Saw a trumpet in the sky this morning
Some would say it was only a cloud
But I saw a trumpet in the sky this morning
Someday it will be sounding loud

How are you this morning this morning
I hope you're feeling fine
Saw a trumpet in the sky this morning
Shortly after Sunday church time

The signs of spring are gathering around
I'm glad to see winter is fading away
Saw a trumpet in the sky this morning
Oh trumpet you have made my day

Why Kitchen Curtains Were Made

Where does the wind come from
Where does it go
Suppertime is near a certain feeling is here

The widow is raised kitchen curtains begin to wave
Kitchen curtains were made
To introduce the Holy Spirit

Your mother worked hard all day the wash is on the line
But the kitchen curtains are dry by suppertime
There's a blessing in the wind and as you say amen

Where does the wind come from
Where does it go
I should have helped mama with the dishes long long ago

Dixie Flags Everywhere

I didn't know she was a confederate soldier
Dixie flags everywhere
If I want to keep living I'll keep my distance
Stand way over here and stare

Once upon a time I asked her if she had a Dixie spirit
She nodded her head said yes and now I know why
Dixie flags everywhere I'm lucky to be alive

She's got old photographs old stories to tell I just know
Maybe we could communicate by telegraph
I don't want to get to close

A guy could get shot just being around her
I'd be looking over my shoulder all the time
I'll gently find a way to say you're beautiful but could we talk long distance line

Little Boy Hide Away

Little boy in Kentucky hiding away
In the lonely mountains
Safe another day

Never connected and what would he say
Hope of leaving is not detected
Little boy hide away

All the days surround him with a view he has always known
And life has never found him
How can life find you when you're always alone

Get a life is a familiar phrase you could say
Some hold it like a stone a view he has always known
Little boy hide away

Johnny Was A Gamblin' Man

A red head caught his eye so he told the other girl goodbye
No he didn't mean to make her cry
But Johnny was a gamblin' man

His luck was changing for the better
Now what was her name how soon could he forget her
He hopes she understands that Johnny was a gamblin' man

Why did he write all those love letters
Guess they were in vain sometimes love isn't forever
But to play it safe a gambler should carry a cane

Perhaps he was looking for fortune but not for fame
She will find someone better if she can
Now what was her name Johnny was a gamblin' man

Simply Fade Away

I can see that you are happy
I can tell by the smile on your face
So I won't interfere I'll just simply fade away

I can tell your life is wonderful
Filled with good things every day
So I won't disturb you not even with memories of yesterday

For so long I didn't know where you were or how you had been
And by luck somehow I stumbled
Across the social media and then

Good to see that you are happy
I can tell by the smile on your face
So I won't interfere I'll just simply fade away
